After a snake latched its fangs onto his testicles while using the bathroom, a level 300 student at the Assin Fosu College of Education (FOSCO) in the Central area is recovering in hospital.
The young man stood up after feeling a pinch in his testicles, only to find the snake curled up when he went to the bathroom, according to reports.
Alfred Amoh, a colleague of the victim, said the non-venomous strike occurred when his friend was attending to nature’s call in an abandoned bathroom facility on campus. Despite the existence of an ultra-modern toilet facility in the school, he told Accra-based Adom FM that some children prefer to use the ancient latrine.
He said they heard the victim scream for help and brought him to Assin Fosu’s St. Francis Hospital.
The victim is responding to therapy, according to Inusah Mohammad, a tutor at the school who confirmed the incident.
